Best liver and onions in Toronto?

Listened to Marion Kane on the radio today who sparked a craving for good old fashioned , home-style liver and onions. Any good recs for diners or neighbourhood restos in Toronto that serve this (nonburbs please)? Chicken or beef liver, love them both.

      Second Pastis! Calves liver with ladons and red wine reduction best in the city! You can have their seared foie gras to start with too!

    2. i really enjoyed the liver and onions at dr. generosity @ bloor east of runnymede.

          1. I like Batifole's version, the pan deglazed with Banyuls vinegar.

              When did you have Batifole's version last?! I had it about 4 months ago and it was HORRIBLE! The 'overcooked' liver ( I ordered it rare) was resting in a pool of watery gravy! Totally uncharacteristic of a 'deglazed' product.. Taste is much less refined and complex than Pastis!

                About six months ago. Ordered medium rare and it was perfect. Sauce was a lovely glaze. Perhaps you caught them on a bad night, I don't know...and I haven't tried Pastis's version so I have no point of comparison.
